Dictating with siri duplicates text

When I use the built-in MacOS dictation feature, sections of my input are erratically duplicated in text. It works fine in other apps like Notes.

Steps to reproduce

Create a new note. Press the microphone button (on my keyboard it’s Fn5) to activate the built-in Siri dictation feature. Speak a few sentences.

Expected result

In my case, I said “I’m testing out Siri dictation. I’m wondering if it’s going to repeat what I say”

Actual result

I get a garbled sentence: “I’I’m testing out Siri dictation. I’m wondering if it’s going to repeat what I’I’m testing out Siri dictation. I’m wondering if it’s going to repeat what I’m going to say”

Additional information

Please test in the Sandbox vault, or with Restricted Mode turned on.

That’s a huge number of plugins.

I can’t reproduce this with a quick test.

It repeated the same text both times, and there’s an apostrophe involved. Might be the Smart Typography plugin.
